During COVID-19, healthcare organizations were forced to scale up their workforce, using expensive agency contract staff. Hospitals and health systems, armed with the financial means, and the backing of the Cares Act, were filling their vacancies to keep up with increasing patient demand. Now that the Cares Act has expired, many hospitals and health systems are left without the necessary staff and coverage, and are unable to afford or to compete with the higher "market" rates. These factors resulted in ballooning labor costs that are completely unsustainable.
As COVID admission rates have subsided, healthcare organizations. across the country, are now looking for new, innovative ways to cut their labor costs, while filling open roles/shifts to continuously meet patient demand. In response, DirectShifts has designed an on-demand staffing model in order to help healthcare organizations cut their costs immediately, while maintaining the flexibility to meet the ebbs and flows of patient demands.
